At McC’s, we’re out to produce the finest ice creams in the world, in the most responsible and sustainable way possible. In the process, we hope to enrich and enliven the communities in which we live and work, and leave the world just a little bit “sweeter” than we found it.


Dense and pure-flavored, with smooth, consistent texture and a rich, velvety mouth feel. 70-years of craft, pushing for something greater, and, with a few, simple ingredients, ending up someplace magical.

Laura’s Review

McConnell’s Ice Cream has been a tradition in my family for years. Every time we drive near Santa Barbara, it is a MUST stop. Now I am not just saying it is the best ice cream ever, I am telling you. This ice cream uses the best ingredients. They make their Ice cream from scratch, from pasteurizing local, grass-grazed milk & cream to organic, cage-free eggs. I have found that the legacy has been upheld through the years and they haven’t broke tradition. Focusing on their relationship with their partners and their farmers is what helps create such an amazing flavor. Without thinking about it, the customer comes first and that comes with selling a product that is fresh, using real ingredients and not adding stabilizers, preservatives or fillers. This is my ultimate dessert!
